Harry! What a champ you are! I've been saying this all along -- that people can take better pics of the moon with their backyard telescopes than the piece of junk we've got floating up in the atmosphere called the Hubble.
The Hubble can't take a decent picture of the moon but NASA wants us to believe they can look out into the universe gazillions of light years out.
All they are is Calvin Hamilton's drawings and touchups on the virtual reality programmed into that hunk 'a junk floating around up there.
You have made my day. I have been lectured here and ridiculed for not understanding how the Hubble works, that its resolution is too STRONG for the moon (Ha!) It's resolution is too WEAK. It's admittedly too weak. The explanation Hubble gives for not being able to take good pics of the moon is because they say their resolution is too low. They admit it.
This should be a wake-up call to people that the rest of the Hubble pictures are big fakes, virtual reality pics created by computer input from over-eager space junkies at NASA wanting to entice people into keeping them afloat a bit longer by showing them pictures of the "wonders of space."
Calvin Hamilton is a layperson who's good with Photoshop and he has done almost all NASA's fancy pics and posters.
